Starport Scramble: The Mission
Prelude to the Starport Assault
Forces present at the Starport Assault
The Space Wolves have the initiative on the first turn unless the Eldar can steal it on a roll of a 6.
Custom – The Eldar army begin the game in reserve. The Space Wolves deploy within 12” of the left board edge
The winner is the army that controls the objective at the end of the game, or wipes out the opposing army. All units except vehicles are scoring units.
If the objective is contested, or no-one controls it by the end of the game, the winner is decided by points scored from Secondary Objectives. If there is still no winner, the game is a draw.
The Eldar army starts the game in reserve.
The Space Wolves must deploy a HQ and TROOP choice, but any other units may remain in reserve.On turn one, roll a D6 for each unit in reserve. On a 3+ they arrive on the battlefield. From turn two, roll a D6 and on a 2+, units arrive from reserve. On turn three, any units left in reserve deploy automatically.Space Wolves arriving from reserve move in from the left table edge.
Eldar arriving from reserve roll a D6. On a 1-2, they arrive from the right table edge. On a 3-4, they arrive from the top table edge. On a 5-6, they arrive from the bottom table edge.
If the unit arriving from reserve has the Scout ability, it may choose to arrive from any table edge, including the left.
